PostSubject: Opening Post   Fri Dec 25, 2009 9:31 pm

It was night at the northern border of the USA to Canada. Only the light of the moon and the stars enlightened the country like region which was peacefully quiet, especially at this time. No one knew that this region was aimed for by an unknown individual coming from outer space. Originally he was aiming for a signal he caught up earlier but since this was his very first travel to another planet his aiming wasn’t the best. He didn’t even know where he would go down. The individual was Solidstrike, a seasoned Autobot warrior and a former Shadowcon. He had a moved past and his future shouldn’t be any different. In his meteorite mode he felt the heat when he entered the Earths atmosphere and it felt like smashing through a wall. Unfortunately he couldn’t see what laid ahead of him so he let himself simply fall down. His audios processed a foreign strange sound he never heard before and his radio receiver caught some freaky signals, he heard voices and laughter, some whing, different languages all accompanied by a loud noise caused by his atmospheric entry. He found another signal he could actually access. He got access to a database, he wasn’t sure what it was, terabytes of data, information about this planet and its inhabitants. But was it all relevant? Local news, regional news, global news, clime information, environmental information, even war fare information and biological information as well. The heat cooled down while Solidstrike was sighting roughly all those information. He found treatments for stomach cancer next to the television-program and tactical information about army tanks next to information about how to hold guinea pigs. There was a lot of confusing stuff and he wondered how the holder of this database were capable of keeping an over view. Solidstrikes outer shell went rather cool as he dived deeper into the atmosphere. His mind wandered on through the database, analyzing the different shifts of the atmosphere he was just diving through. Coming from that he read about the structure of the planet, its tectonic configuration and about its characteristics. Suddenly Solidstrike proximity system gave an alarm, he had to be on the brink of the crash. He quickly raised his energon levels to the outer shell. According to his researches the crash could get rough if he hit land.

The night was lightened by a meteor raining down from the heaven. It crashed unstopped into the ground in the forest of Helena Valley Montana. The noise due to its crash was hearable in the nearby city. Some trees caught fire and the area around the crash side burned. Some birds were scared by the crash and were scattered though out the heaven fleeing in panic. A slight trail of smoke and ashes followed the meteor to its side and the ashes slightly rained down. After the crash everything went quiet. In the distance one could hear some dogs barking excited by they just saw.

The sun has barely risen over the mountains and its light barely touched the regions surface but around the crash side was already warning tape spanned. A good number of police officers and a few reporters, meteorologists and geologists were rushing around a whole in the ground. The fire fighters were just departing because the fire was extinguished. The ground around the whole was burned black and still smoking. But the meteor was gone – no one of the humans ever saw it. They could not explain to themselves how the whole came there. Some people claimed that it was sent by the gods to punish the people for bad behaviour and next time it would hit the city. The geologists and meteorologists already knew that this impact whole was created by a meteor but they could not explain to themselves why there was no meteor. Solidstrike, the meteor that caused that damage, was hiding in the forest around the place and watched the news on the stream he caught earlier. He was amused about the organic creatures puzzling about this whole in the ground. As far as Solidstrike got it, these inhabitants had more pressing problems with their environment than a whole in the ground. But he eventually decided to discover his new environment now, he has been watching those creatures for a few hours now. Transforming into his hover mode he dashed off through the forest. Solidstrike continued his travel on a road he found nearby and after a few minutes a flying there he rushed passed another… what ever it was. Solidstrike stopped and gave that input into his data link. He found a lot of information about this place on source named “Google” and when he looked a little around he finally found what he just saw. It was a Ford F-450… A.. car. Solidstrike remained there a few minutes in bewilderment. Were those the dominant robot life forms around here? Or was that just the set of fashion around here? He then moved on but slower and more thoughtful. Solidstrike decided then to keep himself hidden in the woods and gather some information over Google first. From out of the forest he could see the road and every few hours one or two cars came across the road. It was very quiet out her and he decided to visit the city when the night dawns.

The day was long because it was summer. But when the sun set Solidstrike moved out of the forest and hovered along the road towards the city. On the right and on the left of him were forest and mountains and it was still a long trip until he would reach Helena Valley. Because he was pretty fast compared to the usual cars he reached it after about an hour and left the road before he entered the city. In the cover of the night he transformed into his robot mode and walked between the houses back sides. He wasn’t aware that he was stomping through everyones’ back yard and ruined their flowers. About five houses later he reached another street and stepped onto it. He saw a pick up truck quite similar to the one he met on the road but smaller. Solidstrike knelt down in front of that car, looking at it.

“Greetings.. My name is Solidstrike, who are you?”

He waited several seconds and then wondered why the car didn’t answer. He tried it with the cybertronian universal greeting but he haven’t even completely finished it when he heard a screechy scream behind him. Caught by surprise Solidstrike jumped up and turned around but saw no one. The scream came from further down and there he spotted a bipedal creature. He figured out by now that they were referring to themselves as humans. He knelt down again and tried to make the first contact with the screaming human but he backed off running. Then he heard a barking voice, another one was screaming at him from another direction but this time it appeared to be words. Solidstrike turned around again and saw another human, black clothed, one of the local police officers. He was holding something in both hands and pointed it at Solidstrike, who leant forward.

“Greetings little one. I was wondering, could you help me understand your environment a little bit better?”

Solidstrike wasn’t aware that everything the human could hear was some metallic whining that sounded like deforming metal. The human kept barking at him and than was joined by another one that looked the same and he was also pointing a little object at Solidstrike. The former Shadowcon didn’t understand it. He turned around and the road being block by a number of cars with blue flashing lights on their roofs and another group of humans, all clothed the same. His gaze checked on the other direction again. More cars with blue lights joined the two police officers that were barking at him. What was going? Solidstrike stood up to his full height of 25 feet. He looked into both directions with a bewildered expression, somehow… He felt threatened though they were just such little creatures.

“Hey people… What’s wrong.. You just talk to me and stop making those strange noises..”

He said and suddenly felt a stiching sensation at his upper arm armor after hearing a bang. He turned his head around on his left side. Another bang coming from one of the humans and another stitch at his upper leg armor occurred. Another bang and another stitch and all this all over again.

“Are you shooting at me? … With projectiles? Don’t you know that this kind of weapon is useless against me.. Besides what if I get one of those into my optic?”

Solidstrike tried to sound pacifying but somehow that didn’t work. They barked and shot at him. Solidstrike could possible wipe them all out but on the other hand.. Perhaps they were just scared by him, perhaps they have never seen someone like him and tried to defend themselves and after all.. Every living creature had the right of defending itself. He decided to retreat since first contact wasn’t possible and fighting back wasn’t an option he simply jumped over the blockade and quickly ran down the street. He rushed around a corner and transformed into his hover car mode. He noticed a air craft above him and tried to shake it of by dashing across the streets and between the houses but it was heavy to manage. While dashing through the streets he saw a lot of differend cars, perhaps he should hide among them. He scanned in a pick up truck and ignited the core transformation. While driving his parts started to shift around and regroup themselves. Suddenly a short shriek and four rubber wheels attached to the street. The sensation of moving this way was a completely new one. Solidstrike abruptly stopped and parked his new white Ford pick up mode along side the street between a couple of other cars and turned off the engine. The air craft rushed passed him and did not notice his presence underneath. Not even the humans screamed anymore, they wandered calmly next to him and around him while passing the road without any sign of panic, they didn’t recognize him. Resting from this stress Solidstrike stayed there a few minutes and then started to leave the city. He drove along a street overtook a number of cars standing on the road and was admiring a shiny round red light and then passed an intersection. Suddenly his attention was drawn to the left because of a loud hoot. Obviously unfriendly loud barking sounds were the only way of the humans to communicate. Then something rammed his aft from the right and made him spinning around his central pivot.

“EY! Watch it!”

Solidstrike then barked out and again it was nothing but a whing sound coming out of a driverless car. He redirected himself towards the citys’ exit and left it. That was enough adventure for one night. He returned to his crash side were now, in the middle of the night, no one was. Transforming back to his robot mode Solidstrike looked up into the sky with his silver optics. He already regretted that he came here. Then he looked down at himself to see what has changed. The car parts of the white pick up truck were spread all over his body, melted over his usually Shadowcon armor. The front of the pick up was clearly recognizable forming his chest plate. He found that he looked odd, so different. He send his position to his friend who was also on his way here and he should be able to find Solidstrike wuickly. After doing that Solidstrike moved around and explored the area. He found an abandoned rail road leading through one of the mountains. Solidstrike walked into the tunnel and looked around. Maybe this was a possible hide out as far as it looked like… No one has ever been here in the last few decades. Solidstrike stepped through the darkness with his night vision visor activated he could see the old rails covers by grass and weed. It was a tunnel straight through the mountain and about 3 miles long. In the middle of the tunnel Solidstrike sat down and rested. He decided to wait for his buddy who helped him more often than he could count and he would surely help him this time too.

Receiving the homing signal from Earth Warhead only slightly adjusted his trajectory and kept rushing forward. A dirty world full of living bleeding creatures were their destination, Warhead actually preferred the neat and clean structures of Cybertron but the war was now raging here, on Earth. He also got another stream from Solidstrike, a report of what he has experienced. He got shot at and has been hunted through a city. Warhead was not sure what he should think of the inhabitants of Earth. Actually this was no way to greet one who has just arrived. Or they already knew about the war between Autobots and Decepticons and they have chosen their site... At least according to what Solidstrike experienced they did not seem to pose any threat to a cybertronian of his size never mention of one in Warheads size. He was less intimidated by what he just got to know. A sudden heatwave caught Warhead by surprise but then he enjoyed it. He rode through fire and hot wind but it was of short endurance. After that it became cold and Warhead new that the crash wasn't far away anymore. Warhead has spent his journey to hook on the humans internet and to check on their cultural standard. He found some music and films he liked and enjoyed.. He liked military jet fighter very much and picked one from a film as his alternative mode for his time on Earth. He already completed its schematics referring to the film material only. It was a fictive jet fighter but he didn't care, he thought it looks cool. Beside that he liked metal music. Since he received internet from Earth he continuously listened to Manowar or Dragonforce. Something he really had to share when he teams up with Solidstrike.

His outer shell was quite cold now and he decided to snap out of his travel mode now. His arms and legs snapped out and the outer shell broke to form his body parts. Warhead looked around when he fell in his robot mode further down towards the Earths surface. The sun was just rising and the slight red orange of the morning dunked the clouds into the same color. He ignited his main thrusters mounted on his back and flew on forward now. He saw a plane in the distance, a big chunky one. Warhead smiled. It looked so ugly. Then he opened up his schematics about the jet fighter FA-37 Talon and started the core transformation. His armor deformed and his parts started to shift around to finally build up a futuristic jet with a nice aerodynamic and deadly form. He already loved that mode. Warhead barreled through the air just for fun and performed some reckless flight maneuvers to test the feeling. He spotted Solidstrikes homing signal but he didn't see any reason to rush. He rather decided to enjoy his jet mode a little longer and explored coastal area. He flew deep over it and looked at the houses and streets. He was giggling of joy, everything was just like in the films. Suddenly he caught up a signal: Someone was nearing his position. A quick gaze behind revealed three F-22 Raptors closing in to his position. He should have known... He watched enough films about the US Airforce. It took them a few minutes to catch up to Warhead then they radioed him.

"Unidentified aircraft you invaded US airspace without permission. State your identity and the purpose of your flight."

The voice sounded rough and commanding. Two things Warhead disliked but he didn't take any aggressive actions... Not yet. One may be two minutes passed away and Warhead held course and speed. The F-22 jets have caught up to him, two were flying next to and above of him one was behind him. Warhead didn't pay much attention to them he just enjoyed the view. Suddenly the same voice came through his speakers again.

"Unidentified aircraft I repeat: State your identity and your business!"

Warhead growled lowly, the jet pilots didn't hear that. 'Always those humans that want to be in charge of everything.', Warhead thought slightly enraged. Then he decided to send them something back. He sang the refrain of Manowar - The Dawn of battle and really enjoyed it. The only thing the jet pilots could hear was some metallic screeching and odd sounds they couldn't decipher. The jet on Warheads port side dropped down on his level.

"What was that?!"

One of the pilots bewildered asked a few seconds after Warhead ended the transmission. Suddenly Warhead unblackened his cockpit window and revealed an empty seat to the F-22 pilot. A few seconds later he caught the radio of the pilot.

"It's an unmanned aircraft. I repeat: It's a drone."

Warhead wasn't pleased about being entitled a drone. He growled, blackened his cockpit window and dropped right down several meters. Then he quickly banked to the port side and barreled off. The three F-22 jets immediately pursued him. They were quite fast too and Warhead had a tough time shaking them off. After performing some stunt maneuvers, mostly done to impress the human pilots, he suddenly noticed being locked on and fired upon. The humans were serious.. Obvious. Warhead fired several chaff flares to fool the missile and it worked. Then he dove down rapidly and ripped his nose up again very close above the water surface. He dashed towards the Golden Gate Bridge parting the water underneath him. As soon as he reached the bridge he transformed back into robot mode and hid himself at the bridges' basement at the San Fransisco end. The F-22 jets dashed through underneath the bridge passed Warhead. They flew in circles and searched for Warhead but didn't find him. Quietly and calmly waiting he remained there at the Golden Gate Bridge basement for several hours. In the late evening, when the F-22 were gone, Warhead stepped out, transformed and headed for the homing signal which has beeped all day in his systems.

He followed the signal to Montana almost across the country and finally reached the forest where it came from. Warhead transformed and landed near the source and had to look before he finally found the tunnel entrance. He bowed down, because he was to tall to stand upright in it, and crawled towards Solidstrike who was obviously waiting in the center of the tunnel.

"Uurrg.. That's disgusting in here..."

He stated as he came closer to Solidstrike.

Solidstrike received the distress signal from another Autobot as it seemed... He kept his optics on nthe Shadowcon but then realized that he wouldn't be much of a threat considering his current condition and Solidstrike allowed himself to turn his head around to look into the direction Warhead headed off to. Then he looked back at the Shadowcon who hasn't managed to bring out an answer yet... Perhaps he was unconcsious... Solidstrike wasn't sure.

"You're hardly worth the ammunition..."

Solidstrike said in a bored tone and withdrew his plasma rifle back into his right lower arm.

"We will see each other again... Sonner or later. I can promis you that."

Then he decided to rush to the location the Autobot distress signal came from. One last gaze over to the Decepticon then Solidstrike turned around and leapt off before transforming into the silver Nissan GTR.

It didn't took Solidstrike long to reach the source of the distress signal. He entered the city Fallon and he could already see the damage Warhead caused. A few houses at the beginnning of the settlement were compltely destroyed. The street was full of humans and all stared into one direction. Solidstrike then checked this direction out and saw some white spiky parts reaching over the rubble of the house. Then Solidstrike drove passed the house to see what was behind it. He found Warhead frozen solid and another robot. Solidstrike drove closer and then transformed.

"You have been sending the distress signal haven't you?"

A gaze in disbelief wandered over to Warhead. He looked nearly deactivated. Solidstrike carefully touched the ice surface and felt at once the cold spreading over on his hand. He quickly winced back.

"How did you do that?"

He thumbed over to Warhead after he turned around to face the foreign robot.

Warhead listened to the conversation and looked at the graphic as well. He heard Radiators concern and Solidstrikes answer to it. He didn't miss that this step would mean loosing another weapon. And somehow he disliked the thought. Then he would only have his missiles left. He encountered Solidstrikes gaze with mixed emotions on his mind.

"Then I would have my cannons only when you are attached to me?"

He asked a bit reluctant of accepting all this. But he could understand very well why this wasn't so dumb after all... If Solidstrike would function as his safety power-down when Warhead threatens to freak out again. Maybe it was worth the loss because Warhead couldn't imagine that everything he did in a rage was good. What should he say now...

"It's hard for me to accept another loss because it doesn't take much anymore and I am unarmed. I have only my missiles left when we do this. But I can understand that this is actually a clever step because it would prevent me from freaking out and if I freak out I stay in control. I think... I am unsure."

While Solidstrike was climbing up to Prowl he listened to him what he had to say. Solidstrike seated himself next to prowl and listened intently to his word and barely believed what he heard. After Prowl finished his sentence Solidstrike remained silent for a pretty long time thinking of what to say. His gaze reached into the far distance of the night and his face was neutral like a sculpture of stone. If Solidstrike was still with the Autobots Prowl asked. Was it really his question? Or was it Ironhides? Or even someone elses? Solidstrike didn't know what to say. The silences appeared to last an eternity when Solidstrike slowly turned his head to look at Prowl.

"I don't believe that this is coming from you..."

His voice was nearly a whisper. Solidstrikes optics grew thin and and weak while his processor was still working on what he just heard. If the Autobots asked Solidstrike if he had turned his back on them.. Maybe that was a sign that the Autobots have turned their backs on him... If the Autobots didn't trust him anymore... Was he completely on his own now? Many emotions came up within Solidstrike... Anger, fear, desperation, madness, sorrow... He was not sure how to deal with them, how to deal with this situation.

"The Autobots are my friends... You are my friend.. Of course I am still with you. I... I don't know what to say.. I never even dreamed of leaving or even betraying the Autobots, what made you ask me that? What made you think I... would turn my back.. on you?"

Solidstrike directed a desperate gaze to the ground. That couldn't be true. His best friend thought of him as a traitor? After all they've been through? Solidstrike slowly shook his head.

"What happened in Nevada was an accident... I told you that and it was the truth... I never lied to you, prowl. And I never would..."

He couldn't help but laugh. This was so ridiculous.

"Tell me.. Why should I betray the Autobots? We are fighting for the same goal aren't we? And even if not... Whom should ask for help..? The Shadowcons? They surely eager to ally with me..."

The bitterness in his voice wasn't able to be overheard. He looked again into Prowls face and then up into the night sky, remembering their first evening together here on Earth. He watched the tips of the trees slightly swinging in the soft wind before looking at the ground again.
